About YMCA Carrickfergus

Carrickfergus YMCA was set up in  1873 and operates from purpose built premises which were opened in 2013.

The YMCA  provides a youth club which is open 4 nights per week; a Health Hub which acts as a one stop shop for health information and access to services for 11 – 25yr olds across East Antrim and PAKT, a family support programme which works in four public housing estates. It has also been involved in piloting a cookery school aimed at young people in the NEET category. In addition the new building hosts a local playgroup which works with migrant families, a forum which provides training and support to local adults and a contact centre which provides safe space for children to have parental contact.

Carrickfergus YMCA is managed by a local board of management.
